It's Not a Matter of If You Need to Be Strengthening Your Core, But When Will You Start?
We need core strength to support our spine in a forward flexed position and to promote stable hips while riding. More stability = more endurance.
We also need core strength to preserve strength and mobility for functional life off the bike. Use it or lose it!
I used to be an obsessed cyclist, ignoring everything else. And then I paid the price: back spasms, neck pain, tight hip flexors...
But once I committed to core strength I was able to resume my beloved long rides on weekends, and take on legendary climbs in the Alps.
I didn't get stronger by doing a bunch of sit-ups and crunches. A strong core is not about having chiseled six-pack.
To strengthen your core, you've got to go deeper and find muscles that you might not even know you have! Let me teach you my method for success.
More Strength and Endurance. Less time.
It's possible. Here's how.
Create a Mind-Body Connection. You may or may not know that most people work backwards, working their most superficial core muscles, ignoring the most important deeper ones. Until you connect your mind to your body, you won't be able to access your deep core muscles. But once you do, it's a game changer!
Learn to Move Efficiently. Just suppose for a moment that you could spend less time struggling to strengthen your core (or avoiding it all together) and actually get stronger without wasting time. When you learn how to find and activate your core, you'll be more efficient, which means you won't be wasting time.
Be Supported. No more wondering what you should be doing or when, or being overwhelmed by a massive content library. The Endurance Hub helps you to create a consistent habit with a sequence of workouts will be dripped to you weekly. Most importantly: I'm here to help. Need a modification or clarity around a concept? Just Ask!
Ready to change your life?
That's what finding my core did for me.
For much of my life, I didn't know that I was capable of being an athlete, so I sat on the sidelines. I didn't feel strong enough to even try endure much of anything...
Until I took a Pilates class which finally made me feel what my core was and how to activate it.
Suddenly I had newfound confidence to train for my first half marathon, I ditched spin class for the great open road, and began swimming with a masters group.
Seemingly overnight, I became an endurance athlete. My path hasn't been without injuries and setbacks.
The one thing that has made me stronger and kept me in motion is a strong core.
Over the past decade, I have curated the most effective teaching methods, and a training style that is greatly informed by my experience as a trainer, Pilates instructor, and endurance athlete.
I want to give you the same tools to unlock strength, longevity, and endurance so that you can find your strongest self on and off the bike.
MEET YOUR TRAINER
Hey there, I'm Alexis.
I'm passionate about a few things: cycling, swimming, skiing, core strength, wellness (and my dog!).
I'm a certified Pilates instructor and NASM certified personal trainer. I believe in the power of a mind-body connection, and taking control of one's physical well-being in order to live a robust, colorful life.
Not just another "abs class".
Here's How The Endurance Hub Works.
BUILD A FOUNDATION
Find Your Core
Begin with our signature mini-course to learn fundamentals and concepts before you dive in to weekly workouts.
Here's what you're going to learn:
- What your core is.
- How to make it fire.
- How to use your breath to activate your core.
Strengthen Your Core
Every Sunday you will receive a weekly workout.
Here's what you can expect:
- 28 minutes or less in duration, meant to be fit in to your week three times. Why? Because you'll get so much more out of doing something efficiently multiple times a week than slogging through a longer workout once a week.
- A well-rounded workout that will challenge you.
- Plenty of cues, modifications, and how-to's, not just what to do.
Hone Your Technique
"Golden nuggets" of knowledge are just that - super high value tips and tricks to help you get more out of your workout.
Learn how to avoid common mistakes:
- How to perfect the plank.
- How to activate the abdominals, not the hip flexors during moves involving the legs.
- How to use your core in order to squat and lunge properly.
Join Your Community
A private Facebook group just for members.
Here's what you'll access:
- A community of likeminded women who ride and who are all motivated to stay on track.
- A place where you can ask me questions about the workouts, get clarity, and support.

What Current Members Are Saying...
Hear what made them join, and why they stay.
I've learned so much about engaging and working my core.
"Since starting with The Endurance Hub earlier this year, I've built it into my routine, where it quickly found a place alongside my weekly commitments for runs, weight training, and of course, miles on the bike...thanks to Alexis's inspiration, motivation, guidance, honesty, consistency and creativity each week."
It's really been a continuing education. As I get stronger I learn even more.
"I had a baby 11 months ago which has afforded me less time to go out and bike and swim. My time is so valuable so when I do get outside I want to enjoy it. I'm still enjoying my rides and I do feel stronger. I feel as fit as I did before and I'm doing far less. I think I'm just using my time more wisely."
